i am having an error when i try to export my database in phpmyadmin. When i go to the export page, select "send" and then click "start", i get a window asking me to open or save the file, i choose save but then it freezes and does not ask me anymore for a location. phpmyadmin is now frozen and does not react anymore.
Any help on this issue?
When I go the phpMyAdmin and click on the button 'Export'
I don't see any "send" or "start" buttons to click. What version of XAMPP and phpMyAdmin are you using?
What browser are you using?
After selecting the database I want to use in the left frame menu drop box.
I click on the 'Export'
button on the top menu bar, I see several selection boxes which I don't need to change from the defaults.
Down at the bottom left I see a check box 'Save as file'
which I need to tick. I don't need to change anything else.
Next I click on 'Go'
bottom right side of the page.
Next I see my browser's prompt window to 'Save to disk'
which I click on 'OK'
Next I am presented with a window asking for a location to save to. I select the desktop and click on 'Save'
Next I see my saved database file dbname.sql
on my desktop. Job done.
I don't get a lock up and if I did I would have to suspect a Windows issue. Perhaps a reboot might help you here, then try again.
Also try a different browser or clear your browser's cache.
